RAD Intermediate Foundation Examination
Posted 15 January 2013 - 06:07 AM
I just realised I never told anyone here how the exam went. So, I did wear Sansha Demi Pointe Shoes with ribbons for the exam. During the exam we had to do all of the exercises and on both sides except for pliés, which we only did on one side. Since we were only three candidates (11 total - two groups of four and my group of three), some of the exercises that had to be done in pairs had to be done solo. I had to do allegro 1 and the free enchaînement on my own. The free enchaînement was okay and I managed it without messing up. The music was not too fast either.
By the way, for the free enchaînement we were given the following exercise (for those who are curious to know):
Fifth en face, left foot devant. 4 count intro. Arms through first to second.
Counts 1-3 three jetés ordinaires derrière with arms in 3rd (arm on supporting leg side forward)
Count 4 petit assemblé derrière - arms to bras bas
Count 5 demi plié
Count 6 relevé - arms demi seconde
Counts 7-8 two changements arms bras bas.
Repeated on the other side and the whole thing twice through.

That's a nice easy free enchainement - hope my students get something like that!
I think was really lucky!

I guess I better start working on the Intermediate syllabus then. Next exam session is in November at the school in Bangkok.
